EPP Spotlight: Alzheimer & Parkinson Association of Indian River County
The Alzheimer & Parkinson Association of Indian River County serves residents with disorders affecting memory and movement by promoting quality of life and choice through advocacy, support, empowerment, education and research connections. The organization's Social Respite Program provides up to six hours of free caretaking for people with cognitive impairment in order to offer respite for the caregiver of someone with dementia. This program allows people to socialize in a safe, loving and entertaining environment.
The Social Respite Program is available at the following locations: Indian River Shores Community Center, Sebastian Yacht Club, Gifford Community Center, The IG Center, Alzheimer and Parkinson Assoc. of IRC. Please call 772-563-0505 to schedule.
Alzheimer & Parkinson Association is also a part of our Endowment Partners Program (EPP). The purpose of the EPP is to help local charities plan for their long-term sustainability by growing a permanent endowment fund. During a 12-month program, participants learn about endowments, planned giving, investment management and marketing solutions that inspire loyal donors to make planned gifts from their estates. The program is coordinated by IRCF team member Yamilet Cendejas.
To learn how to give outright contributions today or bequests and other planned gifts for future support, please see “Planned Giving: Leave a Legacy” under our “Giving” section or go to the Alzheimer & Parkinson Association website.
